Description

ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli's Vita mission in numbers.

Vita stands for Vitality, Innovation, Technology and Ability and was chosen by Italy’s ASI space agency, which is providing the mission through a barter agreement with NASA.

In Italian, “vita” means “life”, reflecting the experiments that Paolo ran and the philosophical notion of living in outer space – one of the most inhospitable places for humans.
